A senior official with the Communist Party of China (CPC), Zhou Yongkang, proposed stronger law-enforcement cooperation between China and Nepal, according to a statement of the Ministry of Public Security Tuesday.

Zhou, a Standing Committee member of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remark during a meeting with visiting Nepali Minister for Home Affairs Bhim Bahadur Rawal in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing Monday.

China attaches great importance to China-Nepal law-enforcement cooperation and expects the two countries to deepen pragmatic cooperation and safeguard and promote the regional peace and stability, said Zhou, who is also secretary of the Political and Legislative Affairs Committee of the CPC Central Committee.

China appreciates Nepal's firm adherence to the one-China policy and its prevention of anti-China forces from carrying out separatist activities on its territory, Zhou added.

China is willing to further strengthen communication, coordination and cooperation on the Tibet issue with Nepal, he said.

Rawal said Nepal, which brooks no anti-China separatist forces undermining its friendly relations with China, would like to boost law-enforcement cooperation with China and jointly crack down on crimes on their border areas.

China's Public Security Minister Meng Jianzhu also held talks with Rawal Monday after the latter's meeting with Zhou.

Meng said China's Ministry of Public Security is ready to work with the Nepali Ministry of Home Affairs to implement the consensus reached by their state leaders to enhance bilateral exchanges and cooperation.

Based on the principle of considering the overall situation and looking to the future, Meng expects continuous and healthy development in China-Nepal relations.

Rawal echoed Meng sentiments, reiterating Nepal's willingness to further cooperate with China in law-enforcement.

At the invitation of Meng, Rawal is visiting China from Feb.6-12.
